Speech Prosody 2002
This papers aim is to present prosody as a polyphonic marker through the analysis of Direct Reported Speech excerpts pronounced by a female speaker in everyday conversation. Our results reveal the existence of global melodic differences between the three types of discourse analysed, eg Direct Speech, Direct Reported Speech which contains selfquotations and Direct Reported Speech containing other virtual enunciators than the source speaker.
